【看CP學英文】在這受疫情蔓延影響下的一年,回顧過往是難免的,而今年10月正逢麥可傑克森訪高雄市無障礙之家的24週年,讓許多粉絲感嘆時光飛逝。

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc our daily lives, it’s more than natural that one should reminisce about the “good old days.” 

Such nostalgia extends globally as Michael Jackson’s official Twitter account tweeted on Tuesday that this October marks the 24th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s visit to Kaohsiung, Taiwan’s “Home Without Barriers”.

根據麥可傑克森的官方推特帳號,當年的他正在HIStory的巡迴演出,來台表演時順道前往高雄的醫院,陪伴身心障礙兒童。

在那裡,麥可傑克森陪伴小朋友,與他們玩,送他們玩具,甚至還發放演唱會票邀請他們一起前往。

For the occasion, Jackson spent time with the children, played with them, offered them small gifts, and even gave out some concert tickets.

當年的報導指出麥可傑克森在醫院時也在無障礙之家留手印在一塊大布幔中,並在旁邊簽上M.J.兩字母。如今,此手印和簽名可在無障礙之家的史料室觀賞。

Chinese-language media reported back then that Michael Jackson also participated in casting his handprints on canvas which he kindly signed with his initials “M.J.” The handprint along with the signature was then placed in a hall in the hospital.

推文發出後短短幾小時內就有3萬5000多個讚,網友也紛紛在下留言:「他是上天送來的天使」、「RIP麥可傑克森,世上最偉大的慈善家和藝術家」、「我們愛你也非常想念你!」

The tweet has since garnered 35,000 likes with many commenting “A true angel that God sent us”, “RIP Michael Jackson, the greatest humanitarian and artist of all time” and “We love you and miss you!”
